Arriving on the red carpet in a custom Dundas look, the singer-songwriter caused quite a stir on social media with her sheer cobalt blue ensemble. 

Dundas revealed to InStyle that the edgy look was actually inspired by Prince's iconic look at the 1985 Oscars.

"H.E.R. expressed how Prince has been a lifetime inspiration for her and had built the foundation for her musical identity," designer Peter Dundas explained to the publication.

The eye-catching look was even emblazoned with powerful lyrics from her nominated song, "Fight For You."

"The creative process for H.E.R.'s Oscars carpet look was truly a pleasure," stylist Wouri Vice shared with InStyle. "We were inspired by Prince's first trip to the Oscars where he won best song for 'Purple Rain.' With him being one of her favorite artists, we decided to channel that winning energy."

He continued, "H.E.R.'s mother has always wanted her to wear blue on the carpet and we felt this was the perfect opportunity. The ultimate goal for any red carpet is to have your client shine."

To complete her rockstar look, H.E.R. drew in our attention with her long and wavy tresses that beautifully cascaded down over her shoulder. We love to see it!
